Have you ever seen an athlete begin a race without understanding how to run to the finish line or knowing the prize to be awarded at the end?

Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. Colossians 3:13
I once awoke from spiritual slumber to the realization that I had led myself into the stronghold of unforgiveness and offense.
